Ruby/garnet core with a fuchsia rim. Notes of chocolate covered Bing cherries, calcareous clay, dried rose petals, and vineyard dust dominate the nose. Medium and soft on the palate, this Barbera drinks quite juicy with notes of red cherries, cranberries, clove, allspice, and polished leather tones. Very fun and approachable. Pair With: Margherita Pizza, Chicken Parmesan, Sliced Duck Breast with Orange-Cherry Chutney, Beef Carpaccio with Capers, Parmesan and Olive Oil.
Winemaker’s Tasting Notes: Color is ruby red with purple reflections. The bouquet is fresh and fragrant, fruity when young, later adding scents of plum and berries. Palate is dry, full-boded, well structured. Pairs well with pasta, red meat, grilled meat and cheese.
